Amazon promises Kindle Fire will have Hulu Plus, ESPN too

Hulu Plus coming to Kindle Fire after all

Amazon revealed on Friday that the Kindle Fire will have access to both Hulu Plus and ESPN when it launches, putting it over the Nook Tablet. During the initial app announcement, the movie and TV show streaming service wasn't mentioned, though other premium services such as Netflix and games from EA and Zynga were. This now gives the Fire the edge over the Nook, as Amazon has its own video and music store, while Barnes & Noble doesn't.

The Kindle Fire is a seven-inch, full color touchscreen tablet with 8GB of storage that goes on sale next week for $200. The Nook Tablet will be costlier, at $250, but carry more storage space, at 16GB. Barnes & Noble's CEO Bill Lynch chastised Amazon at the Nook Tablet event by claiming that 8GB wasn't enough for a real media tablet. [via BusinessInsider]
